We must especially scrutinize the front runners for their abettment of child abusers..see Oulette..I think he is not totally clean..and also for any outcries against gays..Turkson allegedly has ties or has spoken or something about the African desire not just to forbid gays to marry..but to kill them. I do not want a pope who wants to kill gays or looks the other way when this is done, and I suppose, given everything else, it is being done.

I would like to have someone from developing world...but first and foremost he or she must be decent and honest. Archbishop Martin seems the best of the lot. I do not know enough about Schoenberg but he has taken on the pope and Sodano..whom Jason Barry has asked to be removed as the pope's last act.

I think knowing what I know right now Schoenberg seems the best plus Martin should be made cardinal this week. I wish we had a pope Sean O'Malley just for his name but I do not think he is clean in the abuse situation..I think almost none of them are frankly.

SNAP has told the world to watch for 3 cardinals who should not be made pope..one is in new york, one in honduras and one in Mexico.

Now is not the time to sit idly by, whether Catholic or whatever...now is the time to insist on decency first and foremost..adherence to the law, truthfulness, honesty in financial dealings..

I may be the worst of iconoclasts but the pope is of no more consequence to me than any other human in the world - unless they should happen to choose one who actually makes a difference - who makes declarations that bring about peace and justice for all.

As an atheist, I say why dont you stand up for what you believe in.

It is a belief system based on faith, why do you want to secularise it to keep the media and the politicians happy? If you believe the story get up on your hind legs and tell the world....don't spend the rest of your lives apologising for what you believe in.

You lot dont deserve a Pope! You seem to care more about your personal popularity on an internet forum than your spiritual beliefs.

I was all for Joe Offer. He'd make a good Pope. He likes to travel, proud of being Catholic, still knows mass in Latin, likes to wear funny hats, and will look mighty fine in those red Wizard of Oz pumps. What else is required?

But then someone said that Queen Elizabeth might step down/abdicate/retire/whatever ta' fuck she does, in three years so now I'm thinking Joe would be a better Queen. Being a raging Queeen is right up Joe's alley!!!

"allegedly has ties or has spoken or something"

That's a pretty comprehensive allegation...

I'm surprised no one has yet resurrected the old comment in such matters "Well, I don't know - but I bet it will be one of those Catholics".

It seems be generally understood that anyone who is hyped up as a favourite has very little likelihood of being chosen.

So, Spaw, if I'm elected Pope, I will declare (infallibly, of course), that the official Papal Garb will be blue jeans, a plaid wool shirt (to match my eyes), and a wool tweed Trilby hat.

Service to the poor, the homeless, the infirm, and the bereaved will be the primary religious obligation of every Catholic. Tolerance and respect for all, will be an absolute requirement.

Priests can be anyone (male, female, straight, gay, married - why should gender or sexual preference should have any bearing on selection of priests?) who feels the calling and is judged by a congregation to be a faith-filled person who speaks with wisdom and love and equity. Strict but reasonable controls will be instituted to protect parishioners from sexual offenses and financial chicanery.

Responsible family planning (and artificial birth control) will be encouraged, and Planned Parenthood will be declared an Official Ally of the Catholic Church, because that organization does more than any other to reduce the number of abortions - by reducing the number of unwanted pregnancies.

Divorced and remarried Catholics will be welcomed without restriction, although the ideal of lifetime marriage will be upheld.

Congregations (orders) of religious women (nuns) will be deemed equal in standing to congregations of religious men; and elected leaders of religious congregations will hold status equal to that of Cardinals, with authority to vote in papal elections.

Collaborative, collegial principles will be used in decision-making, as required by the Second Vatican Council.

Alliances will be sought with all religious and non-religious groups who see peace and brotherly love and tolerance as priorities.

Both liberal and conservative Catholics will be encouraged to celebrate liturgy (Mass) as they wish, even in Latin - with the caveat that condemnation of others is not compatible with true Christian faith.

And the prohibition of the condemnation of others, will be viewed as a primary tenet of the faith.

OK, so that's my platform. Vote for me.

Fr. Joe Sarducci (brother of Guido)

It would be cool to decide who the next pope is with a world-wide internet bingo game. Each Catholic receives four bingo cards. There are four games called, one game per card. The purpose is to spell out

P O P E

Sort of like spelling shell on a calculator with the numbers 77345 then turning it upside down and reading it--but different.

The world-wide name that pope bingo player winner [WWNTPBPW] would get to, well, name that pope.

I would love an African pope. I think one mentioned is past the age cutoff. There is one in Nigeria I know nothing about. THis Turkson needs to be totally investigated to see exactly what his support is of the "kill the gays" legislation in Uganda. He has had some defense of it. It is unclear to me exactly what his support is. But we need to see this as a huge warning light..a pope who at least indirectly endorses the killing of gays? It is too early in the game for me to know much so everyone I believe is obligated to search this out for themselves. It can not happen that he be made pope if it is true. Bad enough we had indirect killing of child abuse victims through their subsequent suicide..but direct killing? It is beyond belief.

Cardinal Turkson comes from Ghana, which is a long way from Uganda. He might or might not have expressed views about that country, but than that applies equally to every cardinal, and indeed everyone.

If A is true than B is possibly true, which means that C is possibly true - and that would be terrible...

I'd go for Joe Offer personally, he's got all the tick boxes, apart from being old (in cardinals' terms Joe's a sprogling)and vicious (unless Joe confesses that he was once in the McCarthy Youth).

But what does it matter who's Pope if he or she are:

legal - address historical abuse by (or condoned by) the church without holding back
truthful - admit it without reservation
decent- don't do it again.
honest - abolish the Holy Office (inquisition) and open up the archives unredacted.

And of course be open to accept real loving people in the world for what thay are.

I can't say I believe much in anything that attempts to foretell the future, but Wikipedia has an interesting article on the Prophecy of the Popes. The prophecy is attributed to St. Malachy of Ireland (1094-1148). It was published in 1595, after it was allegedly found in the Roman Archives. The list is amazingly accurate up to 1590, but its predictions after 1590 are a bit of a stretch. Ex post facto predictions usually have a high degree of accuracy.....

Duh.
